Mine came from Atlantic towers. Very easy to install even came with video tape instruction. Mine has the hindge kit so I can lay it back and still be able to cover the boat. It has worked great and would buy another from them. Mark

If you are anywhere Rhode Island, call Rick at R.I. Marine Fabricators in Barrington. Tremendous quality of work and extremely easy to work with. Let Rick tell you which manufacturers he does work for. (very impressive!) I went to him with a "concept" in my minds eye and he shared his experience and I wound up getting more than I expected and am very happy.
Check out the pictures in the album section. It is in M/V HOT ONE. I have more photos as the arch was being built.

Regardless of from whom you decide to purchase an arch, do yourself a favor during installation. MAKE SURE THE TOP IS ANGLED DOWNWARD POINTING TO THE BOAT'S FRONT. Plan to compensate also for when you are using the radar for the plane angle. My arch was purchased and installed by Atlantic along with a hard top this spring. My friend also purchased the same things for his boat last year.

Both arches were installed with the "flat" area of the arch where the radar antennae are located pitched in the wrong direction!!! This requires one to install shims under their antenna to force that radar beam so near targets will be seen. This is improtant because if the radar beam is high and even higher when planing, you will not see those important targest or obsticles.

You are right! I installed mine with a 4 degree foward pitch and still had to add a 2 degree wedge to get the exact radar picture I was looking for. Very true for us small boat owners. Mark
